Cuteness overload! Little Jacob Tremblay has one goal he can kick off his bucket list in life, as he met his acting idol Leonardo DiCaprio at the Screen Actors Guild Awards Jan. 30. And of course he totally had to share the excitement with the world!
Instagram WIN! Nine-year-old Jacob Tremblay had the best internet moment of the SAG Awards with his adorable photo alongside Leonardo DiCaprio and they both look so darn handsome. “This just happened!!! I finally met #leonardodicaprio #sagawards” the star of Room captioned the adorable pic, that shows the young Canadian face to face with the always dashing Leo giving a smile to the camera. It’s SO precious to see Jacob totally fanboy over his acting hero!
Jacob said on the red carpet before the show that of all the stars there, he wanted to meet Leo the most. He missed the opportunity at the Critics’ Choice Awards where he proudly accepted the award for “Best Young Actor/Actress, and while Leo was also a winner at the same awards show, unfortunately he was away in Europe promoting The Revanent. Jacob clearly wasn’t going to miss the opportunity to meet his idol this time around and he finally got the amazing chance! Jacob was looking super dapper in his “Black Pinstripe” Mod Suit with the matching “Tailored Vest.”
While Jacob lost out in the Outstanding Supporting Actor in a Movie category to Beasts of No Nations‘ Idris Elba, meeting Leo clearly made up for that! We hope to see much more of Jacob as he grows into his teen years, and that he takes the advice that Leonardo have in his SAG Awards acceptance speech for Best Actor, that “For any young actors I encourage you to watch the history of cinema…we stand on the shoulder of giants.”
HollywoodLifers, what do you think of Jacob’s adorable photo?
